The decision was taken after a busy judging day in Dunfermline where a panel of 50 professional judges assessed each and every product on its appearance, quality, consistency and taste.

“Over 80 butchers and bakers entered some 450 of their best products into 11 categories this year and the competition has been fierce so Trotters Family Bakers can be proud to have come this far,” said head judge Ian Nelson on behalf of Scottish Bakers which manages the competition.

“The World Championship Scotch Pie Awards is the only competition of its kind recognising excellence in the preparation of a perfect pie,” said Craig McPhie, president of Scottish Bakers.

Competition winners will be announced at a prestigious luncheon on January 9 at the Westerwood Hotel, near Cumbernauld.
